Liam Payne and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are officially an item.

People reportedly confirmed the news on Saturday (February 27), but nothing makes it realer than Liam’s new update to his Instagram profile. Instead of uploading an IG post, the One Direction member was slick and changed his profile to a selfie of himself snuggling with the X Factor UK judge and former Girls Aloud member. Liam is looking cozy (and shirtless) next to his new bae while Cheryl frames her eyes with a peace sign.

Liam also hinted at his current joyous state with a cryptic tweet on Friday (February 26).

The couple initially met on The X Factor UK in 2010 when Liam and the rest of One Direction were competing on the show. The two kept in touch, especially after Cheryl signed with One Direction’s management company.

They have been reportedly dating since late 2015, and now there’s video (via The Daily Mail) that hints at their love connection when 1D appeared on an episode of The X Factor UK last December.

Liam, who split from girlfriend Sophia Smith last October, and Cheryl, who is in the middle of a divorce from her second husband Jean-Bernard, have “been going on for a while,” a source told People. “Both are very similar and happy.”
